The word “Sustainable” means very different things to different people. To Farmers, it means having viable land and the proper weather to grow the crops of their choice from year to year, as well as having a source of buyers. The same is true for Ranchers who must sell livestock and keep their animals healthy enough the survive. Over generations and with new technology, each have figured out the proper dietary sources of fuel to keep everything thriving.
For the purpose of this book, “sustainable” also applies to humans learning how to eat the best combination of foods for healthier living and their personal well being. Due to a lack of cooking skills, many “Foodies” end up spending much of their budget on overpriced prepared, heat and serve or trendy restaurant foods. Creating a sustainable menu to meet your needs at home is simpler that people think.
